Precious, how much you have grown in the sport of Gymnastics in such a short time is amazing! We consider ourselves very lucky to have a Gymnast like you in Mesquite!

Rockwall

Lillie is one of Coach Rebecca’s Kidz Gym Kiddos. She has been a student at ASI since March of 2016.
“I love coming to gymnastics because I get to flip on the bar, play in the pit, and ring the bell! I like seeing Coach Rebecca, Coach Adam, and Coach Jonny.” Lillie says. When Lillie is not here at ASI, she loves playing soccer with her big sister.

When describing her coach, Lillie says ” Coach Rebecca is awesome because she teaches me new things all the time. She helps me when I need help, and she is always nice to me and gives me hugs.”
Mom says she heard about ASI through many parents at the daycare that her girls attend. “I heard nothing but good things about ASI, and I wanted to try it out for myself. I’m very pleased with the programs and the staff.”

Lillie’s mom thinks gymnastics has benefited her daughter in many ways,”Lillie has grown so much. She has never been shy or timid but is very much a  perfectionist. Gymnastics has given her confidence, a better focus and a remarkable relationship with people outside of her usual. She channels her natural athletic ability as well as burns off lots of that toddler energy.”
ASI Rockwall is extremely fortunate to have such an amazing athlete in our gym, and we look forward to watching Lillie grow here and progress from here.

 The Woodlands

Riley is three years old and is in Coach Lexi’s Kidz Gym class. She loves coming to gymnastics and doing all of the different activities. Her mom says that Riley has a smile on her face from the time they pull into the parking lot until they walk out the door. Riley’s favorite event is everything, but she enjoys jumping on the trampoline, flipping on the bar, obstacle courses, and of course the pit! Sweet Riley loves her coach because she is amazing, fun, and has so much energy. She makes learning exciting!

Riley’s mom said that they enjoy gymnastics because Riley’s coordination and strength have improved so much over the last six months at ASI and her discipline has improved as well. We also asked why they picked ASI, mom said, “We heard great things about ASI. We had done a few Open Gyms with the older kids, and after watching the Olympics, Riley wanted to join! ASI The Woodlands is so excited to have a little gymnast like Riley with is!
